Gripping short that looks at two mentalities
26 March 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Two junior NHS workers are in the middle of a night shift and dealing with it in different ways. Satinda is tired and put upon while Amir is seemingly cheerful and helps pick her up. However Amir is also depressed and using drugs and self harm to help him get by. Eventually they both have to decide how to deal with their stressful lives and to live with the consequences.

Professionally shot, this short looks very good. Some shorts tend to look like student films or have sets etc that look like they were borrowed from a sitcom, but this feels very professionally produced. The story is not so much a story as a character study of the two NHS (British health care service) workers. One works through the stress while the other buries it and uses harmful methods of dealing with it. Needless to say the short has a message about these two characters but it does it without judging either.

The two actors are great – Gulati is bubbly and quite beautiful while Bazely is perfect with the difficult job of half hiding a second character beneath his main character. Likewise the director does a very good job and the short feels and looks very good.

Overall a very good short, the only minor complaints being that it left me with some unanswered question – maybe repeat viewings are in order.
